Too bad Crawford is Grunfeld's pet. He'll be back chucking and pounding the air of the ball in no time.


:lol: Craw is more Randy's pet though.

Double B to the rescue. Fun game to be at. Just too many OKC fans....as usual.

OKC missed 17 straight shots. That would not happen with Crawford taking quick shots that when missed lead to layups at the other end. Give Jordan props for improving, making some tough shots, overall having a good year by his standards. That said, he wasn't missed today.

How the heck did we win without "Michael" Jordan Crawford out there?

I knew Beal will turn out well for us. I think Beal been the second best rookie in the nba.

Okafor thoroughly outplayed Perkins. Can you say, "Trade for draft pick?"

Actually, his value is probably going to really go up around playoff time if Emeka keeps playing like this.

I love that Beal is demanding the ball in crunch time. That's a rare trait that, when paired with a player who can make smart bball plays, can take a star and make him a superstar.

Beal has a long way to go to be either a star or superstar but this is a great sign for his development.

It is really good to see good effort and outplaying a team result in a win. This was a team win where the team that deserved to win did win.

Honestly, based on what we were seeing earlier in the year I thought isolation basketball with Beal was completely out of the question this year.

Something has clicked. He's not gonna do this every night, but really encouraging start to the new year.

New Beal comparison: Reggie Miller.

He's got that clutch gene.

Fixed for accuracy. Honestly, that's going to happen until Durant leaves the Thunder or the Wizards become a legitimate draw themselves in DC. Was at the game as well and it didnt bother me one bit, especially because you know that 98% of the people cheering for the Thunder couldn't tell you the capital of OKC, and because the Wizards have been so atrocious for so long that people here just need something decent to cheer for, and a hometown kid made good is as good a thing to root for as any.

f course I'd never root against my squad unless the tank train was leaving the station.
